Teeline is a shorthand system accepted by the National Council for the Training of Journalists, an organization for training journalists in the United Kingdom. It was developed in 1968 by James Hill, a teacher of Pitman Shorthand and is adaptable to a variety of languages but is mainly used within the Commonwealth. It was created so that the basic alphabet can be quickly learned. With practice speeds of up to 150 words per minute are possible. It is common for people to create their own word groupings to increase their speed.
It is a streamlined way to transcribe the spoken word quickly by removing unnecessary letters from words and making the letters themselves faster to write. Vowels are often removed when they are not the first or last letter of a word, and silent letters are also ignored. Common prefixes, suffixes, and word pairings (such as “sh” and “ing”) are reduced to single symbols. The symbols themselves are derived from the old cursive forms of the letter and the unnecessary parts are again stripped leaving only the core of the letter left.
Teeline differs from many shorthand systems by basing itself on the alphabet as opposed to phonetics, making it simpler to learn but also carrying the speed limitations of the alphabet. However, it is common to find some phonetics used. For example, ph is often just written as an f, so the word phase would be written as if it were spelled fase. This coincides with the creator’s intentions of streamlining it as much as possible. Like many shorthand systems there are few strict rules on how to write it, so it is not uncommon for the user to adapted it to make to make writting as swift as possible. Also, words in Teeline are written by connecting letters together, as opposed to writing each individually, which allows for a faster writing speed.
